It's amazing how much time you can spend in one small area. Snorkeling between Sewell and Headwaters.
This series is from the Cape's Dam area of Thompson's Islands. With so much debate about habitat surrounding this area it was time to take a closer look. Cape's Dam itself got a haircut in the past couple of weeks where Texas Parks and Wildlife removed the old exotic Giant Reed (Arundo donax) colony that had been growing out of the dam for probably decades.
On this day I focused on the section of river between Sewell Park and City Park (Lions Club). I started at "Dog Beach" across from City Park and swam upstream until the current was too strong for swimming with a camera. Then I walked to the top of sewell and began photographing once I got to the deep end of Sewell by the bleachers.
On my second day photographing the river species I focused more on macro and species specific photos.
